More Wind and Trout Oct. 6th 2010

PA060158I had the same gang again today and the same conditions. The steady NE wind made it a challenge to get a steady bite going, but we caught several trout and red fish through out the day. We made a quick run offshore Crystal River to try and troll up a grouper, but the water clarity was very dirty; so we ran back to the kelp beds and stayed inshore for the rest of the day. The trout bite for the day was on and off.  However, we did catch plenty of under slot trout, a couple keepers and a few small red fish to fill out the day. There was no special bait that out preformed the other and we threw everything from top water plugs, jerk baits and DOA deadly combos. Thanks guys for a fun couple days and hard efforts. I'll see you in a few months... Capt. Dan
PA050156Good to be back at the office after having a fantastic Maine trip. I had Jim, Donnie and Jesse out of Crystal River today to target some trout and red fish. We met at Pete's Pier this morning at 8am and although the winds were a gusty 15mph plus, the trout bite was on. It was rough on the outside, so we fished the mouth of some mangrove bays and it was steady action all morning. DOA shrimp and Berkly gulps in the holographic root beer and camo colors were the hot colors today. Tide made high just after noon and even though we didn't have alot of water, there was enough to put 11 red fish in the boat.  Free lined live shrimp under a cork was the bait of choice for the day. The conditions were not the best, but the guys worked hard and had a great catch to show for it. Thanks again... Capt. Dan
salmonJust home from another fantastic fishing trip from the North woods of Maine. Fall was in the the air, leaves changing color, trout and salmon were all lit up and a great time with friends and family. We fished a variety of rivers and streams including Spencer, Moose, East Outlet, Wilson and Kennebec to name a few. All areas produced very well and for the week I totaled over 30 salmon, some were in the 20" class and several beautiful brook trout. All the fish were caught on my own tied flies and it's a good feeling when the locals are asking a Florida boy what are you using and "hey man very nice catch". The weather wasn't the best and many days it rained and it was quite warm from the previous trips of the last couple of years. However, it didn't slow us down and the fishing really was great. I enjoyed meeting Bob from Kennebec River outfitters and the folks at the Maine Guide Fly Shop hope to see some of you down here some time. A big thanks to Westy, Rich, Jess, Josh, the Unit and the Shipyard brewery for a very memorable trip. Here is one of the land locked salmon of the week "caught on a lizardfish pattern", I'll see you all next year... Capt. Dan
P9220152Today was a 1/2 day charter at the Homosassa Fishing Club. Joe and Sham were on my boat today and we ran a little north to target some trout. The trout bite is picking up more and more inshore, and the long off shore runs from past couple months are not needed to put some keepers in the boat. The DOA deadly combos were on fire today and we put 11 in the cooler before we had to be back on the dock at noon. It was steady action all morning and we even caught a cobia to add to the mix. Thanks to both of you for a great morning and here is this mornings catch... Capt. Dan
